"daughter has tonsils out and gromits fitted"

About: Queen's Hospital (Romford)

Anything else?

My 6 year old daughter had her tonsils out at queens. After bing sent home later that day from her operation in the night she vomited blood so we bought her back to a&e asap and was told she had blood clots in her throat they kept her in 2 nights on a drip. After this we was sent home and 2days later she vomited blood again but a lot more. A ambulance took us a&e and the doctors said it was blood clots again. And kept her in for another 4 days on a drip ,at this point my daughter had no energy in her from the loss of so much blood. After being discharged four days later , it again happened again 2days after being discharged she vomited a lot of blood, then back in a&e again this is only when the doctors took it more serious as my little girl looked pale as a ghost from the constant loss of blood, they then took her back to theatre where they discovered her throat had 2open wounds from the operation they did. I would never ever recommend queens hospital to anyone and the hospital food there Is disgusting cold and not great for a I'll child needing to get better,
